If it's just the rotation part you need, you could handle that on the
backup server side with a short script, copying the dailies into weekly
folders, weeklies into monthly folders, etc.
I know, rolling a custom script is something some want to avoid, but this
particular script would be very straight forward. I've been using this
guy's strategy for years...
...and now that is rolled into a utility called rsnapshot (www.rsnapshot.org).
In this case, you would only use to rotate, though, not actually back up.
